The Body's Physics by Janée J. Baugher (Tebot Bach, paperback)

Publication Date: June 1, 2013

Publisher Marketing: Poetry. "In THE BODY'S PHYSICS Janée Baugher explores 'narratives of marrow,' creating a wondrous intersection between the physical embodied world and the presence of a keenly observing human mind. As her fine gaze takes in 'muting folds of skin like exclamation marks,' she enlarges the reader's sight along with her own. Baugher finds words for the wordless as the body and artwork acquire voices, bringing the visual into language, the heart's unsaid into words."—Alice Jones

"In THE BODY'S PHYSICS, Janée Baugher's poems reveal how art creates life. Wild with ideas, rich with emotion, her lines focus on paintings and sculpture, then leap from them into her own spirited imagination. Her words praise what 'we see and can never see.' Her profound conversations with visual art, deep journeys of mind and body, remind us to be 'open in the manner that a sea opens.' Fine gifts, these poems."—Peggy Shumaker

"Janée Baugher's ekphrastic poems move in a synaesthetic dance with the physical body. THE BODY'S PHYSICS explores the vivid color/vibrant motion of emotion as, one by one, the poet picks the lock of paintings, sculpture, and poems. The recombinant DNA of Baugher's chosen gallery generates its own idiosyncratic 'axial heat.'"—Judith Kitchen
